Bo-Kaap (Malay Quarter) is an area in the city of Cape Town, South Africa. It is an interesting part of the city as it was the place where rental houses were built to house slaves in the 18th century. It is a colourful area with each house that was built to a Cape Dutch or a Cape Georgian architectural style being painted in a bright eye-catching colour. Taking a walk along the cobbled streets of the area you will get a sense of the community spirit in the multicultural area. There is a museum in the area that is dedicated to telling the story of the area.
The area is situated within walking distance of the main train station in the city. The 101 bus stops close to the area.
